Does anyone know if this kit will do both lenses? The 3M website doesn't say.

Yes it is, I find the kit does a good job. Best when paired with a 120 volt corded drill because the can spin faster. Just tape off so you don't slip and hit the paint.

Agreed. A nice cordless works also. Best kit for your headlights.
Anyone have success with any of the other kits on here?

"It takes all your money and demands most of your attention. What do you love more than your car?"

This used to be true. Now Woot! takes all my money and demands most of my attention.

Answer: I love Woot more than my car. Don't tell my car though. It might retaliate.

I used the fuel system tune up kit on my Hyundai Elantra last year when it hit 100,000 miles. NOTICABLE difference in performance afterward.

It took about an hour all together, and cost me $20-$30 rather than $100+ from the dealership.

It is definitely worth it!

About how long does it take to do a headlight?

I did two headlights in less than two hours You don't want to rush it though. Like most polishing activities taking enough time on each step to remove the scratches from the previous step ends up saving time in the long run.

I purchased one of these kits about 4 months ago and keep finding excuses not do go outside and actually use it. I say buy it now and use it next year ;)

Yes, this kit will do one vehicle. There is enough product in the package to do both headlights, the running lights and the tail lights. In my experience, the worse the headlights, the better the results with this kit

Depending on the size, it should.

I restored a 2005 Honda Civic headlight lenses with a cheaper kit (didn't include the tape and only one of the pastes) and it did both lenses VERY well. ALMOST like new. I was extremely pleased.

Just remember to take your time, and follow the instructions completely!

I did both headlights on an 01 CRV, and both on a Forester, still have half (or more) of the supplies left. Took me about an hour per car, wasn't painful, just careful of the painted surfaces.
If you know of a high end detail shop (like I do), they have the right sealants to prevent your headlights from re fading in a few years, this kit alone will fix the symptoms but not stop a recurrence. If I knew more then that, I'd share, but this I just found out after I did mine and LaminX'ed them...

I used one of these kits to do the headlights on both of my cars. It does a fantastic job (if you take your time and follow the directions). On one of my cars the lights were quite dim because of all the scratches, etc. before I used the kit. After the lights on both cars looked like new.

My Miata is at 210,000, so will it be roughly double as awesome?

The scratch kit is cheaper on Amazon because of free shipping. $14.95/free shipping. This will save a buck if shipping is already unlocked/free.

We had our Avalon done at Toyota of Huntington Beach. Cost $80.00 and they fogged up within a month. They did them over and they fogged back up again. Still fighting with them over this.

I used a 3M headlight cleaner a few months ago and it worked great, I used the manual one which does not require any power tools though.

Lens' can be cleaned fine just wet sanding by hand and then using any polish/compound to finish with. The "protectant" isn't anything more than a wax, for that price. If you're looking for something more permanent it'll cost you.
